In early 2003, Nelly released the controversial single, "Air Force Ones[?]". MTV, MTV2, and VH1 refused to air the video due to product placement for the popular sneakers of the same name.

Nelly is one of the few African Americans the have mad it to the top, and is making a good rowel model for other people.
